I just have this feeling it's going to suck. Against LOLSmash they won't be getting the movement damage increase because leap is virutally instantaneous movement, then they don't have to move so no increased movement damage. And if you start kiting, then guess what...can't cast GR so you aren't building stacks and so your damage is still going to suck.

Bottom line is that they added some needed escapability/survivability, but without changing our need to continually hard-cast we will still be lackluster at best in PvP and considering the buffs alot of other classes look to be getting we could actually end up even worse comparatively to where we are now come ROTHC.

The net specifically says that it prevents instant movement abilities like Leaps and Charges. So you throw it on a lolSmash and he either stands there and takes it to the face or runs to you and grows that DoT to giant size.

Really? So a 2.5 sec cast FA deals just as much damage as a 3.0 sec cast FA?

Yes.
It still ticks 3 times. The issue is alacrity ****s up the optimal rotation for ammo regen really badly for commados.

Not worth gearing for but a little alacrity from the skill trees will boost your dps without causing too much trouble.
